I find it difficult to reconcile the educational benefit of animal attractions with the conditions of these facilities in the developing world. The trainers are clearly committed to the animals and activities such as swimming with the dolphins brings in revenue, but clearly not enough to maintain the facility to the standards that should be internationally dictated for wild animals...

This is wrong... I hope everyone realizes that animals do not live for making us happy! Use animals to make money is wrong!

Apart from the dolphin show, there is option of doing activity swimming with dolphins in which different activities like feeding dolphin, shaking hand with dolphin, getting kissed by dolphin, swimming on top of the dolphin are covered. A must do activity for everybody. Dolphin show has a comic Thai sword fight in the beginning of the dolphin show.

Entrance for the show 500B show lasts about 40mins after the first 20mins of watching 2 guys doing some sort of sword/martial arts act.

Kids enjoyed here a lot. But later we visited bang kok safari world that dolphin show was better. At pattaya you can swim with dolphin with extra cost.

Swim with Dolphins- who could resist!! The place itself is very well presented- clean and tidy- and some attention appears to be paid to the welfare of the dolphins e.g. they check the length of your fingernails if you elect to swim. We went midweek- the place was empty but for a large group of school children- all having a... More

The places in Thailand are different for different people. Some will enjoy and some may not enjoy at all. It actually depends which place you visit and with whom and in which mood. The dolphin world was an awesome experience for me. We had to wait for sometime for about an hour before the show starts. We therefore went around... More
